Reminds me of the story about the homeowner approached by an indigent
wanderer looking for work. As it so happened, the hapless homeowner was
getting ready to take his Leica M6 with 35mm Summilux out for an airing
 must keep on topic...) when his wife reminded him that it was Saturday and
that he had promised to paint the back porch.
Well, he could hardly believe his good fortune when the wanderer came to the
door and asked if he had any odd jobs to be done.
"well," He said, " I do have some work. I want you to take this brush and
this can of paint out back and paint the porch."
The Indigent wanderer happily took the tools and went around back of the
house, and the happy homeowner went in to pack his gear for a day of street
Upon exiting his abode, he ran into the indigent wanderer who appeared to
have finished!
"What?," He exclaimed. " Are you finished already?"
The wanderer replied, " Sure, mister; piece o' cake! But I gotta tell ya-
that ain't no porch back there- hit's a Mercedes!"
